Roxanne Pallett is a renowned English actress as well as a former broadcaster who rose to fame after her role as Jo Sugden in the ITV soap opera "Emmerdale" from 2005 to 2008. As a pop singer, she co-founded an all-female music group called 'Urban Angel'. She is also famous for acting in horror films such as Lake Placid 3 (2010), Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort (2014), and Devil's Tower (2014).

Additionally, she had guest roles on television series such as 'Casualty', 'Waterloo Road', and 'Crime Stories'. Back then, she faced severe backlash for falsely accusing fellow housemate Ryan Thomas of punching her during her time on 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2018. In the year 2007, Rosa Roxanne Pallett, a deep red hybrid rose, was named after Pallett and launched at the 2007 Southport Flower Show by Cheshire-based grower C&K Jones. 

Recent in the news, Roxanne stated how she suffered from three breakdowns after appearing on CelebrityBig Brother. Back then, she became public enemy number one during her stint on the reality TV show. She made shocking claims that former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas had intentionally punched her torso in an attempt to hurt her inside the house - but the footage showed he was obviously playing fighting with her. Now, two years on from the scandal, the actress has shared that she "fell apart three times in the space of three months" and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She underwent therapy and was given sedatives as she battled with suicidal thoughts. She told, "It was therapy, travel, Johnny Cash's music, and Sylvester Stallone's Rocky films that got me through. Those films saved me and are my Bible. It might sound crazy to say it but, in the end, God took the wheel. I wasn't religious before and a lot of people might roll their eyes about it or not understand it."
